Our Inspector's view

In a secluded location between Dorchester and Weymouth near Ringstead Bay, this is an exclusive conversion of six luxury holiday cottages – 2 ,3, 4 and 6 berth historical properties, some with log fires, ships' beams and four-poster beds. There are modern facilities alongside sumptuous, classical furnishings and vintage artefacts. The mature, ‘Olde English’ gardens, with a helipad, are frequently visited by foxes, deer, badgers and a variety of wild birds. The properties are open virtually all year and champagne welcome packs are available.

About the area

Discover Dorset

Dorset means rugged varied coastlines and high chalk downlands. Squeezed in among the cliffs and set amid some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery is a chain of picturesque villages and seaside towns. Along the coast you’ll find the Lulworth Ranges, which run from Kimmeridge Bay in the east to Lulworth Cove in the west. Together with a stretch of East Devon, this is Britain’s Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, noted for its layers of shale and numerous fossils embedded in the rock. Among the best-known natural landmarks on this stretch of the Dorset coast is Durdle Door, a rocky arch that has been shaped and sculpted to perfection by the elements. The whole area has the unmistakable stamp of prehistory.

Away from Dorset’s magical coastline lies a landscape with a very different character and atmosphere, but one that is no less appealing. Here, winding, hedge-lined country lanes lead beneath lush, green hilltops to snug, sleepy villages hidden from view and the wider world. The people of Dorset are justifiably proud of the achievements of Thomas Hardy, its most famous son, and much of the county is immortalised in his writing.
